Enjoyed the nice ambience (decor is a bit dated though) and great service. Dishes were exquisite and tasty. Can tell that a lot of effort has been put in to prepare and present each dish. Appreciate the complimentary champagne from the restaurant for our wedding anniversary!
Always a wonderful dining at Alma, the food and service never fail to impress
Flavours and texture of food were interesting without coming across as trying too hard. Restaurant service was excellent although we had a rude shock over the phone when we tried to inform the restaurant that we will be a little late for our 115pm reservation. The person on the phone basically threatened that we won’t get seated unless we arrive by 130pm claiming that it was strictly the last seating. However, Quandoo allows lunch reservations up to 145pm so that clearly was a lie. However, other than the unpleasant staff over the phone, we had a good experience and will be back to try the dinner service.
First visit to have the 8 courses set menu. Very refined taste and fresh ingredients. Plentiful of spices but there's a theme standing out for the 'soul' of the dishes. Bravo!
This was a birthday celebration for my husband and overall it was a very pleasant experience and the birthday boy was happy. We took the 6 course meal and almost every course, including the snacks, was visually photo worthy and had most of us nodding our heads in approval and at the same time trying to decipher the flavors, tastes, and ingredients. Two of us in the party of 6 felt there was an overuse of truffle in too many of the courses, but truffle lovers like me will have no complaint. The Hokkaido scallop sashimi and and the lobster were very fresh and sweet and the venison very tender and not gamey. Although quite pricey at almost $200 per head for the 6 course set with one bottle of wine to share, we felt that the quality ingredients, the attentive service and the ambience of the restaurant is worth it for a special occasion.
This is the fourth time I've dined at Alma and the Degustation menu never fails to surprise my tastebuds. The delicate combination of ingredients and garnishes brings out the unique taste of each dish. The plating of each dish is a state of art and one can sense the pure culinary passion of the Chef from the complexity of the dishes compositions. The ambiance is just right with a good list of wine to select from. The service crew is great and very knowledgeable, providing full explanation of what goes behind each dish. In summary, a quintessence experience for me. if you are driving, you might want to consider parking at Far East Plaza, a short walk to the restaurant.
Service and food were impeccable and excellent. We had the 6-course dinner with wine pairing. The only two shortcomings were 1) the venison were lower grade than we thought it should be (was a bit tough so we didn't finish it) 2) wine served was mostly French rather than Spanish which is a pity cos this is Spanish cuisine after all. This was quickly corrected by the staff on the spot when we gave feedback and we are pleased with the quality.
Very good food . Scope for improvement in service . On a few occasions I had to pour my own wine . If I get up in the midst of my dinner , the napkin should be folded and kept neatly on my table which was not the case . A small side table can be provided for ladies to keep their hand bags . The restaurant decor should be improved. The dinning chairs don’t look that great
Expect to be taken on a fantastic culinary journey at Alma. The delight is in trying things that you normally wouldn't order in a restaurant. All the dishes were top notch, the service was excellent. We had the wine pairing, which worked perfectly with the meal. We also enjoyed trying to guess what the wines were and the staff happily played along with this. If you have a special occasion then I would wholly recommend.
Wir waren innerhalb einer Woche zweimal da. Einmal 5 Gang- und dann das 8-Gang Menü mit Weinbegleitung. Das sagt doch alles aus!!!! Beide Male war alles perfekt! Eine Geschmacksexplosion am Gaumen und ein Erlebnis für alle Sinne. Großes Kompliment an die Küche und vielen Dank für den herzlichen und perfekten Service sowie die schöne Auswahl der Weine.
